COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT: Finnish army chooses networked battlefield communications and surveillance equipment from Elbit Systems

Leaders of the Finnish army based in Mikkeli, Finland, needed battlefield communications and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) equipment for the services infantry soldiers. They found their solution from Elbit Systems in Haifa, Israel.

Elbit will supply its Dominator enhanced observation soldier equipment, situational awareness software, combat radios, and wearable computer systems under terms of a contract from the Finnish army, as well as support the military service in developing new combat doctrines for the Finnish army's future forward observation programs. The amount of the contract was not disclosed.

Dominator will help enhance the Finnish army's situational awareness with networked integrated information systems that enable warfighters to send and receive information in real time, view an up-to-the-minute common operational picture of the enemy and their own forces on personal displays, as well as live video from either external or on-body sensors and transmit images and positions back to commanders and colleagues.

Dominator features the Elbit Systems C4I SW software developed to assure simple, swift operation in intense combat. It supports planning, situational awareness, target handling, and device connectivity, as well as video and map displays.

Elbit's C4I SW software also provides command and control for light infantry forces, and interfaces to armored units, artillery, and close air support units.

The Australian army also has chosen parts of the Dominator concept for its Land 75/125 program, in which Elbit Systems will provide battle group and below command, control, and communications (BGC3) systems for Australian soldiers, vehicle-mounted commanders, and headquarters/command post staff, under terms of a $298 million contract.
